Vanity - Here's a nightmare...
9/10/12 | nully

Obama's father was a British subject, and at birth he inherited British/Kenyan citizenship from him as well as US citizenship from his mother.

Suppose the UK or Kenya grants Obama diplomat status...

And effect treason charges? I'm pretty sure that can't happen. If he were to have diplomatic immunity, it means that he's a fraud and that large portions of the government are accessories to conspiracy, treason, sedition, attempting to overthrow government, etc.

We could get into the whole you can’t impeach one who does not hold the office legitimately but are there not crimes that diplomatic immunity does not protect?

From Article I, Section 9 of the US Constitution:

“No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State. “

... assuming anyone pays attention to it anymore.

Impeachment is a political, not a criminal process. Diplomatic immunity doesn't apply (even if the idea wasn't absurd).

Treason is not technically possible. By definition a Swedish diplomat can never commit treason against America.

“diplomatic immunity!”

We can always impeach him and under the law DI does not gaurantee a person would not be prosecuted. People have the wrong idea what DI means and protects a person from.

Plus, if you wanted to go down that road as well, that means he is also a spy and subject to execution under our laws for spying.

Diplomatic immunity is granted only to those diplomats formally accredited by the country in which they serve. If the host country hasn't accredited your diplomatic status, you have no immunity.

If a Nobel Peace Prize falls into that category, the precedent was set by Henry Kissinger.

If he were granted diplomatic status, then he could be sent back to his “home” country, whichever that is, at the request of our government.

According to Mexico George Romney did not lose his Mexican citizenship when he became a US citizen and according to Mexican law the children of Mexican citizens are Mexican citizens.

Mitt Romney is a dual citizen.

He’s not the first American to accept a Nobel Peace Prize, not by a long shot. Teddy Roosevelt, Jimmy Carter, Al Gore and several others have, just off the top of my head. Did he deserve his? Of course not, but that’s not the point.

With a Dem Senate, you can bet they’d give Obama a pass on anything (without regards to any other matter of the thread).

With Obama and a Dem Senate, we have the equivalent of a Soviet Premier and the Politburo.

Still, if he really was born in Hawaii, he’d be a US citizen from that in addition to his being a British subject through his father.

Still, Kenya could grant the person their own parliament has described as a native son of Kenya honorary diplomatic immunity, and the State Department could accredit him.

Who in State would dare not to?

Obama having diplomatic immunity would make it much more likely, not less likely, that he would be impeached. It would be prima facie evidence that he was disqualified from holding the office, and it would do nothing to protect him from the proceedings, since it isn’t a criminal matter. Also, diplomatic immunity is a privilege that we grant to foreign diplomats, it is not something that we are bound to abide by in all situations.
